about

Whiterose is a DIY fusion of many elements of electronic, punk, synth, and post rock music. It also serves as a generational analysis of communication, societal interactions (and reactions), education, and purpose on the precipice and accelerated re-emergance of the far-right in western society. It comes via both the music and the blend of distorted, electronic, symphonic, and kinetic sonal qualities of the LP. Quite nearly in the form of a progressive concept record, Whiterose continuously changes structurally while maintaining its own sonic identity. Whiterose is one song, but divided into four parts: Manhunt, I Was Never Here, It Was Always You, esc.


Lyrics:


"Manhunt"

All I wanted was to interrupt time,
To tear all the brakes and tracks off this carousel,

The dream is over but we're still fast asleep,
If it's all in my head, then explain why they listen in,

Violence is loudest when it's quiet and veiled,
I see truth in desperation, lies in calm,

Ephemeral as though it came from above,
It's your manhunt led by everyone you've loved


"I Was Never Here"

Lights go out when you walk by,
The servers burn and the batteries die,
"All I wanted was to change the world",
Now I am what I lack,
And the train becomes the tracks,

(What have we done?)

You want to finish college?
And change the social scene?
Well, let me be clear about this machine,
You're not doing a goddamn thing unless you're on a crucifix or a TV screen,

(What have we done?)

Do you feel that time has broken us down?
We're still stuck in the past and future all the while,

Never a minute just to live in the moment,
We're second guessing or planning for the worst,

Look for me amidst both the future and past,
I am fading with each while taking the present apart,

Although I love you it is perfectly clear,
When I look in your eyes,
I know I was never here,

I was never here


"It Was Always You"

All the while,
No matter what I'd do,
All the while,
It was always you

"Manhunt"

All I wanted was to interrupt time,
To tear all the brakes and tracks off this carousel,

The dream is over but we're still fast asleep,
If it's all in my head, then explain why they listen in,

Violence is loudest when it's quiet and veiled,
I see truth in desperation, lies in calm,

Ephemeral as though it came from above,
It's your manhunt led by everyone you've loved


"I Was Never Here"

Lights go out when you walk by,
The servers burn and the batteries die,
"All I wanted was to change the world",
Now I am what I lack,
And the train becomes the tracks,

(What have we done?)

You want to finish college?
And change the social scene?
Well, let me be clear about this machine,
You're not doing a goddamn thing unless you're on a crucifix or a TV screen,

We're still stuck in the past and future all the while,

Never a minute just to live in the moment,

I am fading with each while taking the present apart,

Although I love you it is perfectly clear,
When I look in your eyes,
I know I was never here,
